Sony Vegas Pro 9.0c Software Update

Sony Creative Software continues to release updates for its Sony Vegas Pro 9 nonlinear HD video and audio editing software. Now that video editing tools have settled into support for the new HD formats like HDV and AVCHD, the focus of this new 9.0c update is enhancing the editing workflow and extending support for native editing of specific camera formats, round-trip from import to delivery.

Camera support includes the Device Explorer for directly browsing and importing RED ONE (.r3d) files, round-trip support for the XDCAM EX with MP4 file rendering back to the camera SxS media, and additional support for Blackmagic and AJA cards for capture and output via SDI, HD-SDI, and HDMI.

The update also adds Smart Rendering of MPEG-2, which provides faster encoding and less generation loss for projects with minimal, cuts-only editing.

Additional audio enhancements include élastique Pro Time Stretching for flexible timestretching and pitch shifting, and Import Stereo Audio as Dual Mono, for example to split separate channels with interviewer's and subject's voice.

The Sony Vegas Pro 9.0c software update available is a free download.
